London-based post-punkers Lea Porcelain are taking on 2017 headfirst, with a four song x four cities gambit, that is seeing them play gigs in London, Berlin, Hamburg, and Paris, and release four new singles. The first of which is 'Bones' - a 2015 track getting a new lease of life. But it's a deserved one.
The German duo have clear influence in Joy Division and Echo & The Bunnymen, while embracing dancier elements that have characterised their homeland in more recent times as well as a more historical Kraftwerk-esque electronic slant. Sweeping and melodramatic, 'Bones' could be described as a throwback, but perhaps more appropriately, it feels timeless.
Lea Porcelain play the Electrowerkz in London on 15th February. Find more info at facebook.com/leaporcelainofficial.
